The movie was being filmed at Mira Costa High School in California and officials from the school decided to shut down production of the film. They claim the reason for the shut down is because they were unaware of the subject matter of the film.
Pictures were posted on Facebook of some students and the Vice Principle of the school posing with Snoop during the shoot. There was also a YouTube video of Snoop singing about a less than studious subject.
School district officials said they received a facility use application several weeks ago for the filming of a movie that was billed as a comedy about the typical life of a high school student. The application was approved for three days of filming, and the cost of filming would be $3,000 per day.
“After permission was granted to film, the project transitioned to another firm that is unfamiliar to the district,” Principal Ben Dale wrote in an email to the school staff on Tuesday. “The production team did not inform the district that the project had changed.”
Assistant Superintendent Steve Romines said once the district learned the true subject matter of the movie, they immediately canceled the contract.
To add insult to injury, the school demanded that the footage from the first two days of filming not be used.
No news about re-shoots have been announced.
